Speaking of Gold, The 2016 Summer Olympics Done Our Way!
With all the excitement of the Summer Olympics, our Supportive Daycare Coordinator, Cristina Camarao thought, why should those athletes have all the fun? With that one thought, she brought the Olympics games from Rio to Swansea - Let the games begin! Our seniors and staff participated in Ladder Toss, Bean Bag Toss, the Javelin (pool noodle) Throw and (beach ball) Basketball. Team Canada took the Gold but to see all the results and the fun, you'll have to CLICK ON THIS LINK!
Thanking Our Volunteers
Here are the Swansea Council on Aging, we understand the importance of working together to meet the needs of our Senior community. While our staff members do all we can, we acknowledge that we need help! Our volunteers are an outstanding group of dedicated individuals who give of their time and talents for no other reason than to give back. How lucky are we? In 2016, their commitment and dedication has been obvious. During our Fiscal year, they GAVE to the Town of Swansea more than $120,000 in service hours - INCREDIBLE! We thank them for their service to our seniors.
